Riggings Bids on the Courthouse Steps: Real Estate
12 PM EDT
DOJ’s recent foreclosure and municipal tax lien auction bid rigging prosecutions across the U.S. are different from other cartel cases, as many conspirators are individual citizens, while victims include financial institutions. Related to a task force formed in 2008 to combat financial crimes, several cases also allege fraud and other criminal statute violations. Panelists, including former prosecutors, discuss some of the unique features of these cases, DOJ’s enforcement message, and what to expect next.
